Welcome to God first, with wavy, when committing to encouraging you to put God first, while viewing life. The window of the Bible. Now, in honor of the one and only true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob left doing fine.

See Thomas for today's message greetings in the name of our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ name is Brian Thomas and is always a joy honor. It is a privilege to join you on the golfers program with the state of North Carolina recently approved a new school curriculum that would teach elements of critical race theory to students, kindergarten through 12th grade and if you're not familiar with critical race theory.

In a nutshell, it teaches that whites are races simply because of the color of their skin, and that they are oppressors and the oppressed Blacks here in the United States of America again. That is what critical race theory teaches not. My belief is their belief will state Lt. Gov. Mark Robison the first black person to hold the position has been very outspoken in his opposition to these changes to North Carolina's education system so as a result, he has been attacked by the leftist media so I want to title today's program.

Woe to the scribes in the book of Matthew chapter 23 verse 13. Although it said, but woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, Jesus exclaimed.

Woe to you scribes seven times in the book of Matthew chapter 23 now what Lewis is something one time. You better pay attention, you better sit up to listen and adhere to what you say you he said it 77 is the number of God. Seven is the number of perfection. So when he says something seven times he's really trying to drive home a point called the scribes, hypocrites, along with the Pharisees. So, in light of that, I want to talk with you today about the way in which I will Lieut. Gov. Mark Robison and other Republican school board members were recently portrayed in the media. So let's begin by listen to a news conference that Mark Robison, Lieut. Gov. called on the day in which this attack by the media took place in clip one that cartoon doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is the hypocrisy behind that's what bothers me is that you will portray a black man just because he's in the GOP is a client portray an American Indian woman Native American will live the office of the Lumbee Indians and who has had to face the plan face-to-face and their egregious actions and have had to fight against you puts her something that Bob, the hypocrisy of mindnumbing folks right now. This office is not standby and let it go by and go along to get along Colorado every every time. Okay so Gov. Mark Robison is addressing a cartoon on the local news outlet WR you, which portray GOP members. That is, Republicans as Ku Klux Klan members and why simply because they are Republicans and they oppose school curriculum that paints our country as being systemically races never rested earlier. He's a black man you heard him say it in the news conference. The press conference. He is a black man but yet he was portrayed in the caricature as a Ku Klux Klan member and not only he, but a Native American woman as you heard him mention the Lumbee Indian who has had face-to-face confrontation with the client. She also was portrayed as a Ku Klux Klan member all of the GOP members of the state school board or portrayed here in this cartoon on W oriole as an elephant dress in a clan suit.

As you can hear from the press conference Lieut. Gov. Mark Robison. He's fired up and he should be. He has every right to be an and you will do when you hear this, you hear and how minorities a black man a immuno being portrayed as a Ku Klux Klan member and all the other Republican school board members that should get you fired up as well of me is is like a friend of mine says it. If that doesn't get you burning your words to it because this is an injustice. This depiction, this cartoon was posted on the second day of Black history month.

So rather than celebrating the fact that will hear Lieut. Gov. Mark Robison the first black person to hold this position in our state's history. The fact that he made this great accomplishment.

The first black person to do so rather than honoring him and celebrating him in black history month. Instead, he's be characterized as a Ku Klux Klan member and SEC of the hypocrisy is mindnumbing is is really really mindnumbing, but remember, as I said earlier, Jesus called the scribes, hypocrites. Keep that in mind and if you see the video. The press conference.

You will notice that there was no clergy standing with Lieut. Gov. Mark Robison at the press conference that was just his wife and then there was a white gentleman standing there who I believe is his attorney is not positive on that they were the only two standing there and if you notice when you see press conferences heal by the leftist in which there is a perceived racial injustice, you will see a large contingent of clergy standing there as a show of support. There's no one there with him and I'm in the process of reaching out to his office to ask if I can be notified of. I can be in the distribution of clergy because I want to be there to show support as an ordained and licensed minister I know of another black pastor locally.

He also has made the same statement that he is going to be there standing without Lieut. Gov. the next time something like this happens they are portraying him as a Ku Klux Klan member and again he asked the question, where is the proof. There is no proof. This is this this is this rhetoric okay because of an opposing view. So let's continue to listen to our Lieut. Gov. during the press conference because there is WR Yale law that will represent yourself to be in this state again that private visuals that a product Facebook page that is a newspaper sells itself to millions of people across the state. That would put something that Bala okay so he asked the question W oriole is that who you are and I echo the same sentiments is that who you are. Is that what you want to be known for. This is a top rated news media outlet in the Triangle area of North Carolina in Raleigh, North Carolina. This is not just Joe blow's Facebook page were somebody just decided to go and post something on on Facebook or some of the social media outlet. This is a credible news outlet in here they are depicting a black Republican Lieut. Gov. as a Ku Klux Klan member in your grew up watching W oriole news.

That was the go to news outlet for my family and I'm very disappointed in what I'm seeing it. It really really is gut wrenching, you know, it pulls all my heart that they would do something that they would allow something like this they would publish something like this and I had a conversation with my mother. Not too long ago when I said you you cannot trust everything that is put out in the media because there are agendas out there now many media outlets are no longer trusted sources for facts used to be that they would just report the facts, but now they have a speedy and that they're going to put on it to two increase their narrative, increase their agenda so we have to be wise and understand what he is taken place.

But again, our Lieut. Gov.'s ass and the question is that who you are, so let's continue as he discusses the illustrator behind this cartoon. What I understand the person who drew this is 1/8 grade social studies fiction that's true, he's teaching these falsehoods GOP to promote the Ku Klux Klan and the ideal barrel. I can tell you that is promoting this guardrail is he doing in his classroom. Okay so you hear the Lieut. Gov. did.

He's fired up.

He should be.

He's stating that this cartoon again depicting him and all the Republicans on the school board as Ku Klux Klan as members are you it was drawn by 1/8 grade social studies teacher. He's asking the question that I asked if he's willing to make this public for everyone to see what is he teaching in the classroom behind closed doors when they are nothing but students.

There and if you're paying attention to what the Lieut. Gov. said he may make the statement that is not the GOP that were advocates for the client. If you study history go and study the look it up yourself. You will find that it is not the Republicans that were advocates for the Ku Klux Klan. So we see the hypocrisy does there folks I was school system is in a movement of indoctrination. Our school system is not just teaching our kids how to read into spiel to write. There's an indoctrination going on. I want to make a statement now but I want to ask for anyone has minors listening.

I want to to have them step away for about 15 to 20 seconds because this is an adult message that I'm about to speak on and if you're minor listening. I want you to ago by the honor system and do not listen to what I'm going to say within the next 15 to 20 seconds. There are reports out there that kindergartners are being taught masturbation in some schools. That's right, you send your little child off to school thinking that they're going to go to learn how to read right place socialize with other kids learn math, but they're being told something like this at kindergarten age were talking about five years old six years old folks, this is not good and I also heard a story recently in which a brother older brother of a seven-year-old boy. He looked at his young brothers schoolwork from the day and saw that he had a drawing, in which he had drew a picture of Donald Trump and he wrote on the caption Trump must be stopped. So the other. The older brother. He being raised. He brought it to the attention of others and he said wise. My seven your brother being taught politics in school that should not be happening is going to school to to learn how to read to write to get an education, but he's being indoctrinated politically and in this should be the case for regardless of which side you will politically. Whether you're in favor of a Democrat with your in favor of a Republican. Whether you're in favor of the libertarian or whoever we should not want our key is to be talks political biases in school so there's an indoctrination that is going on. We need to be wise folks and understand what is taking place because this is not good. There is an indoctrination that is going on. The devil is out to steal to kill and to destroy. He's looking to do so through our children and again we need to be aware of what is taking place. So were going to take a short break, but please don't go away.

This depiction of our Lieut. Gov. who is a black man in which he was portrayed as a Ku Klux Klan member Celeste continue listening and click for Sony's that is our divorce and this should give us Paul's department works slow down and revisit this issue, not pasty standards on the mall first.

Okay so suppose this is what the issue is at hand. There is a battle over systemic racism and divisiveness in this curriculum has a tone of systemic racism has a tone of painting our nation as a nation of races that has always oppressed Blacks and so our Lieut. Gov. along the other GOP members are saying this is not good.

This is not what we want. Now those on the left are trying to accuse the GOP you wanted to hide our nation's past, but I Lieut. Gov. and others, and I agree with him totally are not trying to hide our nation's past, they they recognize that there were injustices done in the past when it came to slavery and Jim Crow and the civil rights movement, but they instead want to teach look at how far we've come look at where we are today, in spite of what was done in the past does not dwell on the use of slavery in the use of racism and inlets not paid our nation today to be systemically races because this curriculum is going to further divide is one appoint negative seeds in the minds of children and we should want to unite one another and so I agree totally with Lieut. Gov. Mark Robison in the other school board members with the GOP who feel this way and as we look at the schoolteacher and what he has drawn. I feel that it confirms the concerns that I Lieut. Gov. has in that there are things going on in the schools that are teaching kids things that are divisive things that are going to do nothing but divide and plant negativity.

Now, again, there's a movement in our nation that is painting things as Blacks are oppressed elements of the smokescreen who don't know, I am a black man here speak and also Lebron James is been very vocal about oppression of Blacks in the United States of America.

He's he's stated that well. Blacks are not treated right in that Blacks are afraid to go out in the public because they think they're going to get hunted down and killed by police officer simply not true.

I do not go out every day thinking that I'm going to be hunted down by police officer because I will be low so I don't have a concern about that and I personally don't move any other Blacks who have the concern either. This is what Lebron James is misstating and he's just costly pushing a narrative that will. Blacks are oppressed in this nation but let me share with you folks that Lebron James makes $39,219,565 this season to do what to play.

That is what three euros to four euros. They play they just play all day without a care in the world and don't get me wrong I'm not anti-sports, I played basketball in school.

I watch sports today, but when it comes to society. Sports does not have a redeeming value in life.

Life goes on just fine without sports it is not look like Lebron James is came up with a cure for disease or that he saved someone through through brain surgery. He's playing a game for entertainment. He makes 39 million+ to do so but yet calls this an oppressed nation.

Now keep in mind that it did the EPA season is 82 games and if you go into the postseason.

You could go up to maybe 100, but in light of the fact that when you look at most Americans work 260 days a year. Lebron James is working less than that. And yet he's making 39 million+ dollars. I wonder what black slaves who came to this nation and works in searing heat were beaten and tormented what they would say to Lebron James. They could speak to him today because I feel very strongly that they will see Lebron look at how blessed you are.

Look at how you are getting paid millions of dollars to not even work do not really working. You just playing you doing something is entertainment people enjoy it.

That's why they pay you mean is legitimate money.

I'm not knocking him or any any other one to get paid a lot of money for entertainment when they're doing it. A moral legal way but yet steel.

How can this country be so bad when not only he, but there a lot of other Blacks that also play sports and do other things of entertainment and their millionaires so I look at Lebron James and I look at Colin Nick who will not stand for the national anthem because they say this nation is so oppressive whites over Blacks and asked myself the question why using these guys cannot see how blessed they are that they are millionaires through what is the set up in this nation. There are white people who are the primary contributors to deal be millionaires but yet they are constantly complaining this is a racist nation and their leaders out there and I'm talking even with the religious leaders, pastors who were not being peacemakers today. We should strive to be influencers of calm during this time of tension know me as a father I have two children have a son and a daughter, and there are almost 2 years just under two years apart when they were younger about the ages of three and four were my daughter. We potato chips crunching sound would drive my son up the wall.

He would just flip out now as a dad that love my children whenever she goes to get potato chips. I would have one of two options to choose. I could either divert his attention away from it and take him somewhere in the house where he would not hear it and see you so that it will be calm and peace or pocket, pointed out a highlighted so that he could see it in flip out if there will be chaos as a loving dad.

I'm going to want to be a peacemaker. I want to do whatever I can do to be a calming influence not just for my sake before my children safe from a homesick and so when I look at what is happening today in our nation, and I see pastors I see influential people like Lebron James who could be peacemakers who could be influencer influencers of columnists that whether there truly is a races act taken place or whether it is a perceive races that they could speak words that could be peacemakers but instead they stoke the flames of the fire and that is Satan's MO. He is his MO was to divide and conquer. There so many out there that are fall into it, especially pastors. I see churches that are given into this whole woke movement in God is not pleased with it. So let's listen to the remainder of the press conference from Lieut. Gov. Mark Robson were busy investigating plaintiff a separate door. The washing they say yes, the vast majority of people went to Washington DC just want to have their voice heard there was a small minority who did some very bad place and should be punished but the vast majority of people went to Washington DC simply went to have their grievances addressed now are trying to hunt down those people demonize those people simply going to have their voices heard Wally teacher in a motel out of middle school draw door like that Victor the first black Lt. Gov. is a class class is something we cannot stand for folks is something I'm not gonna stand free speech. Yes, all court with no free speech brings you to be a hypocrite and I will say this publicly proved to be a simple correct and a liar goes for a solid four to stand up against is happy now not dictated lectures that happen in the future is attended.

The guys have a question rising again. The lieutenant governor was fired up and he has every right to be.

So be calls the entire GOP as he said was vilified because of the misdeeds of a small percentage within the mainstream media a news outlet publishes a cartoon depicting the first black Lieut. Gov. of North Carolina as a Ku Klux Klan member and he says the hypocrisy is just mindnumbing.

There's a double standard.

He says they are hypocrites and liars because if you remember last year when the protests were going on that were led by the leftist, the BLM in which you sell innocent businesses that had nothing at all to do with the that the action that they were processing about these innocent businesses were were destroyed were word torn down, burned down, and you saw so many on the left.

It will not condemn them they would not say a word. Matter fact, they promoted it they they've celebrated it.

They even created funds to to build these people out of jail they were out destroying innocent businesses. So there's a hypocrisy there is a double standard. There remember Jesus said but woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, Proverbs chapter 11 verse nine reads the hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered to Lieut. Gov. I want you to be encourage. I know you don't need to hear this from me, but you will be delivered because you have the righteous knowledge of Jesus Christ.

But remember in Matthew 23, seven times, our Lord said, but woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites described in ancient Israel were learned man whose business was to study the law to transcribe it into write commentaries on it. They were also hired on occasions when the need for a written document arose or when an interpretation of a legal point was needed but describes went beyond interpretation of Scripture, however, and the added many man-made traditions to what God is said they became professionals at spelling out the letter of the law while ignoring the spirit behind it.

They knew the law and they told it to others but they themselves did not obey you now so you may ask the question okay so was the correlation well today we have media outlets that are playing the role describes yes they are secular they're not religious as the scribes were in the biblical days that Jesus were addressing the same principle applies be calls. It is their job to give us factual information. It is their job to not be bayous. It is her job. Just report the facts, we should be able to trust news outlets to report nonbiased nonpartisan news, but that time is passed in our Lord said to describes the end. Woe to you scribes called hypocrites in the lieutenant governor today is calling them hypocrites. This is why so many people are afraid to speak out if they have a different opinion from the left, because they're worried about the way they're going to be pretrade there word about their reputation being tarnished and being called a races of them being character have a caricature of them as a Ku Klux Klan's member but we should not be worried about the consequences if we speak out. We should instead be concerned about what will be the consequences if we do not speak out because what is taught in public schools today will result in the policymakers of our future Christian parents will you stand up will you speak up because today's emperors there seeking to silence individuals there seeking to solid organizations that do not comport or KU to their political or social point of view we seen this in our world with the dictatorial type of leaders totalitarian type of leaders in which if you have a variant of opinion that is in opposition to what the government of the leaders out have, then they will imprison you in some cases they will take your life. We see the same thing happening today with our nation but is coming from the in which if you have an opposing view and try to destroy your character.

But again, Proverbs 11 says you will be delivered by righteous knowledge that I want to encourage again Republican school board members. I Lieut. Gov. if all of you out there that are saying we cannot stand for our schools teaching children things that are not true. We cannot stand for teaching divisive curriculum things that are going to continue to calls defined in our nation to be Niners. We need to heal me to go one accord because God has blessed his nation greatly God has blessed us so much. We are turning more and more away from God to repentance.

And that is why we are seeing the chaos. The division that is taken place. Well folks, we are all out of time, but I want to thank you for tuning in with me today. Please come back next week as we encourage you to put God first. While you alive through the window of the Bible. Until then, remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem blessed God's great nation of Israel. The only wise God be glory.

Jesus Christ, forever. You can blame God for Ryan and I first was protected under our until next time great nation of Israel first
